With Atlassian ending support in February 2024 for Jira Software Server – an on-premises deployment of Jira Software - what’s your plan for data protection if you choose to migrate to the cloud?  

While Atlassian has plenty of tools in place out of the box to protect your data, there’s always more you can do to help prevent data loss. Therefore, you’ll be glad to know that our previously-announced Atlassian Jira Cloud Data Protection is now available, effectively expanding Rubrik SaaS Data Protection beyond Microsoft 365 for those customers who have gone through or are in the midst of a cloud transformation. 

Why Protect Your SaaS Data 

Malicious deletion is the leading cause of SaaS data loss. With hackers exploiting gaps in security, some sources note attacks targeting an enterprise’s SaaS data have increased more than 300%. But accidental deletions, configuration changes, and other user errors can also make data loss a concern. And SaaS data may be less likely to be completely restored if enterprises are not using a backup and recovery solution specifically designed for their data volume and complexity. 

According to the shared responsibility model, the control and operational responsibility for operating and maintaining your SaaS application lies with the SaaS provider. But the responsibility of protecting and managing the data remains with you - the customer. And being able to protect and rapidly recover this valuable data is paramount.

In particular, DevOps data inside SaaS applications is critical to employee engagement and how functional teams like IT, Engineering and Development, Product, and Support collaborate. Loss of this data has the potential to significantly slow down engineering development lifecycles and affect product launches, management of strategic projects, and day-to-day business operations.

Rubrik Data Protection for Atlassian Jira Cloud

With Atlassian Jira Cloud Data Protection, Rubrik can help extend the data protection controls available in Atlassian by providing a secure backup from which to recover your data. Rubrik can help you both ensure your data is safe and accessible and help you restore with precision and confidence. 

  • Keep hackers, rogue actors or compromised administrators from deleting or altering backup data with air gapped and access-controlled backups

  • Automatically protect new objects from data loss with policy-based backup rules which can be set according to backup frequency and retention requirements

  • Locate and restore the right data from the right point-in-time, with visibility into modifications and deletions over time and at a granular level

  • Keep valuable, complex relational data intact for more comprehensive recovery

  • Unify reporting for audits with the singular Rubrik Security Cloud platform which offers flexible retention policies to meet business requirements,  multi-factor authentication, and encryption for data in-flight and at-rest

According to Anneka Gupta, Chief Product Officer of Rubrik, “Offering enterprise-level protection for data living in SaaS applications helps our customers scale and grow operations - yet remain confident in their cyber resilience. Rubrik has re-thought the way SaaS data protection is done and found a way to easily protect modern workplace applications in the same secure platform that protects enterprise, multi-cloud, and unstructured data. Customers can not only secure Jira Cloud data alongside their other business data, but also quickly recover the data they need, when they need it.” 

Going Forward

In addition to protection for Jira Cloud and Microsoft 365, Rubrik support for even more SaaS applications is planned in the future, with coverage for Salesforce, ServiceNow, Google Workspace, Dynamics 365 and more.
